Awhile again, Carwow’s Mat Watson needed to say goodbye to his long-term Audi RS4 Avant however did get to welcome a long-term BMW eight Sequence, particularly the 840d. He’s already gone over the 8er a bit and defined the spec his automobile is however now he’s given it a full assessment. On this new video from Carwow, we get to be taught nearly the whole lot we have to know in regards to the new eight Sequence.
For starters, it seems to be implausible, particularly in its Sundown Orange Metallic paint. What’s attention-grabbing is that the eight Sequence seems to be simply nearly as good in humble 840d spec because it does in full-on M850i spec. That’s a little bit of a double-edged sword, because it means the cheaper mannequin doesn’t lose any magnificence nevertheless it additionally signifies that the dearer mannequin doesn’t look any higher than the cheaper one.
It’s additionally nice on the within and the inside design is definitely extraordinarily much like the unique E31 BMW eight Sequence, which is definitely actually cool. I’d like to listen to fanatics complain about how the brand new eight Sequence’ cabin is lame however the basic is nice, now.
What makes the eight Sequence particular, although, is the way it drives. It’s not fairly as snug because the Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupe nevertheless it makes up for that by being sportier and extra thrilling to drive. It might even do some respectable skids, regardless of being diesel-powered and all-wheel drive. So, as a sporty grand tourer, the 8er is tough to fault.
Are there some drawbacks? In fact. As an example, there are some pretend vents on the again, which is disappointing. Additionally, its again seats are glorified parcel cabinets, with about as a lot leg room as an coffin. There’s additionally the super-fake exhaust noise contained in the cabin, which disguises its diesel clatter with V8 rumble.
Nonetheless, faults apart, the BMW eight Sequence looks like an excellent sporty GT automobile to drive on a regular basis.
